Why you shouldn't take 4 toddlers out to lunch...

Hey everyone! It is so rainy and yuck here right now. Perfect nap weather. Today, we were supposed to go to Greek fest with our playgroup. It's a festival once a year that features the best Greek food. It rained about the time we were going to be there, and we didn't feel like walking a ways, and especially me since I forgot my stroller. We hung out at Michelle's house for a bit discussing a game plan. In the meantime, Addi and Rylan tried to figure out how to ride a tricycle. Cuteness!

We decided to go eat Larry's Pizza. I've only been one other time and I was really excited because I have heard everyone talk about how good it was. I had high hopes for Addi because she had slept till 10:30 and she has been loving pizza lately! Oh boy was I wrong. When we got there Addi sat for maybe three minutes in her high chair and would cry everytime I offered her a bite of pizza. She then stood up and did a trust fall on to me and screamed when I wouldn't let her down. OH. MY. WORD. I tried several times to entice her with dessert pizza, crackers, cinnamon cherrios. Nothing worked, she literally just screamed because I wouldn't let her out of the high chair. I was absolutely mortified. I decided to let her go to the little game room that was nearby. I had an eye on her from the table, but decided to go in since there was another little boy in there. He was probably 7 or 8. He yelled at Addi for getting too close to him and his tickets. Cue me glaring at him and momma bear rage building up.I brought her back to the table and thought she might like to play Peek a Boo barn. Umm no. Again, screaming and arching the back. I yanked her up and we went to the bathroom and we had a come to Jesus talk. By the time we came out, the other kids were done eating and the mean little boy had left so we sat and I finally ate my pizza. Literally two minutes later, we see Rylan up in the skee ball game! Like IN the part where you throw the balls into! Addi and Harper had climbed up the ramp and were probably plotting to get in there too! Good gracious!!! We decided they could no longer be unchaperoned so we stayed in there with them. I'm sure everyone in there was SO happy for us to leave. Times like that make me so stressed out, but I know that one day we will miss that craziness. :)



We splashed in some puddles once we got home. Addi did not make a peep when I laid her down, so I'm chalking up her awful behavior to being tired. Ha!


Hope y'all have a great weekend!!!

  1. First of all, Addi wouldn't be normal if she didn't act like that now. Secondly, thank you for extracting Rylan from the skee ball machine before we required the jaws of life.
